USA: Tyson to cut 500 jobs over next two years
US meat producer Tyson Foods has announced that it is to cut 500 US jobs as it integrates the operations of meatpacker IBP, which Tyson acquired last year.

Tyson hopes to cut positions that are already vacant as well as eliminating jobs as people retire, reported the Associated Press.
